Hooking power supply back to desktop gateway computer 310 series after changing motherboard need diagram where can i get one


Let me look around for you.

The plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel. The area of pins on the motherboard that the wires from the Front Panel attach to, is the Front Panel header.
Sometimes there are two Front Panel headers.

This information may be tough to find.
What is needed is the manufacturer name and model number, off of the motherboard.

There were several different motherboard manufacturers used, and several different variations.

I'm going to post two links that may help you with identifying the motherboard manufacturer, and model number.

Look in the middle of the motherboard, around the edges, and in-between any expansion slots on the motherboard, for identifying nomenclature.

http://www.ascendtech.us/itemdesc.asp?ic=MB4GWTHRASHER&eq=&Tp=

http://www.pcpartsohio.com/gateway.aspx?c=2&s=91

Going further, there is a motherboard chipset on the motherboard.
The motherboard chipset consists of the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

The Northbridge chip will be covered with an aluminum finned Heatsink. It's identifying model number/letters will be covered.

The Southbridge chip usually does not have a Heatsink. It's model number/letters will be easily identifiable.

The Northbridge chip and Southbridge chip are installed in a mated pair.
A specific Southbridge chip will be used with a specific Northbridge chip.

This means that identifying what Southbridge chip is used will lead us to what Northbridge chip is used, without removing the Heatsink off of the Northbridge chip.

This shows you a motherboard diagram, detailing how the motherboard chipset is connected to the rest of the motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

This general example of an average motherboard shows you the Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MicroATX_Motherboard_with_AMD_Athlon_Processor_2_Digon3.jpg

Looking in the middle of the motherboard you will note a bl;ack square Heatsink that looks like a meat tenderizer.
This is the Heatsink over the Northbridge chip.

To the left of the Northbridge chip, and to the left of the ram memory slots, is the Southbridge chip.
It has VIA on it in white letters.

State any identifying letter/numbers that you see on the motherboard.
Please state in a Comment.

Regards,

1. function of bios chip 2. function of north and south bridge chipset 3. cpu function


Hi there. Here is a brief description of those components found on the motherboard.

1. BIOS chip: This is known as Basic Input Output System and the chip contains the base instructions on how to boot the PC. All personalized settings can be configured in the BIOS such as CPU overclocking.

2. North Bridge: This component works with high speed hardware components such as RAM and PCI-E cards.

3.South Bridge: This component works with slower speed hardware components such as the hard drive and USB.

4. CPU: Central Processing Unit, this is basically the brain of a computer and this component is the one that does all calculating of data. So when you run an application, the CPU processes the data involving the application.

Please rate and comment, thank you.

I need drivers for the matsonic ms8167c motherboard.


Matsonic not provide support for their motherboards. Try to use "3DP Chip Software" to identify, download and install the appropriate drivers with your motherboard.
You ca download the application on this page:

Download and run it.

WARNING : This procedure can render your device dead, so do not try if your player is working fine.
  1. The most important step of the whole process is to correctly identify your device CONTROL CHIP and CPU, using wrong firmware or flashing tool may cause damage to your device, unscrew and open your device and write down all chip id's and motherboard numbers you see, you can also try the EasyChips - firmware identification utility but it did not worked for me.
  • You will now need to download the correct firmware and flashing utility for your device, visit sites below and search for your control chip and cpu to download the firmware and flashing utility, you can also post on user-forums to get help identifying the firmware :
  • In my case the chipset was Sunplus AJ262-V7 and the utility needed to flash it was FRM Pro.
  • Once identified you need to connect your device to computer via USB in camera mode (Press A + OK button and plugin USB cord on player), for Windows to identify this mode you will need camera drivers you need to point Windows Found New Hardware Wizard to Driver folder downloaded with the FRM Pro utility above, this will install the first camera driver, for correct identification by flashing utility you need to install a second camera driver - open Windows Hardware Manager and install unidentified camera device drivers by pointing the driver wizard to Driver folder used earlier.
  • Now install and launch FSM Pro flashing utility the new firmware.

    Can i get sound drivers for intel 865 for windows 7


    You will need to find whose sound chip is used (probably Intel) and you can get this info and tons more with Belarc Advisor, a free utility will give you a detailed description of every piece of hard- and software on your system, along with installed 'fixes.'
    Once you know which company produced the chip for specific functions, you can find their website and get needed drivers.

    VGA Drivers for Mercury p4vm800m7


    Hi,

    If it, the video adapter, is a standard type of intel chip, you can usually find drivers on the intel site.

    Beyond that, you may first need to identify the video chip on your motherboard and then go from there....

    Server continously beeps 5/6 times over and over againcan anyone identify with the problemcheers


    Hi, this type of error alert is most often related to RAM chip failure.
    If you have more than one chip, swap them around or try to boot using 1st one chip then the other to identify the faulty one.
    Replace this and all will be ok.

    Motherboard


    This is kind of a tough one, so I'll give you what I can. Open the case and locate the largest board ( the motherboard) and painted on the motherboard (with usually white lettering paint) there should be the name of the manufacturer. Some of the majors are Asus, Intel, Biostar, Abit, Foxconn, Gigabyte, evga just to name a few. There should be a model number painted somewhere on the board in smaller lettering as well. If not paint, look for a thin somewhat long sticker towards the perimeter of the board which contains a model number and a serial number. If you can find a model number but no vendor name, do a google search on the model number and the name might pop-up. If this doesn't get you anywhere, your next step is to identify the sound chip itself. This isn't as daunting as it sounds, but will take a bit of time. To identify the sound chip look on the motherboard, and write down the information on each chip. You don't need to write down any information for chips that have heat sinks (like the processor, graphics, sometimes the bridge chips) will only leave a few. Then do a google search one by one until you hit on one that is a sound chip. Then do a google search for drivers for that chip. Hope this gets you started.
